"I was amazed by the Peace Palace … the feeling of space was brilliant … the whole effect was one of under-stated elegance. The food was beautifully served and the staff were so helpful."

The Peace Palace is mainly used for residential TM Retreats for those who already practise Transcendental Meditation but also offers Wellness B&B for anyone who appreciates the settled ambience of the building and serves delicious organic vegetarian meals. It is the home of 'TM Suffolk' and is a lovely settled place to learn TM in comfort away from the busy demands of your daily life.

The Peace Palace is designed and constructed according to the principles of the most ancient system of architecture, Sthapatya Veda - Maharishi Vastu - realised in a modern context. It is part of a garden village development with 60 dwellings designed to the same principles - and more planned. There is also a Maharishi Ayurveda Centre next to the main building.

"I first discovered TM when listening to a discussion about it on the local radio station. This came during a time that was very difficult in my life having become widowed . Although I have have tried many forms of meditation, I felt there was a need for further growth. Whilst learning TM in residence at the Peace Palace, I had the privilege of meeting lots of people from all walks of life. Since practising TM it has given me the most amazing experiences and benefits. The meditation has left me feeling at peace, happy, more energetic and content. The benefits are indescribable, mentally and physically. My friends and family have all seen a wonderful change in me, I can't thank Annie and the team enough."
